Information for the Audience:
At every screening, the audience reaction is the reaction is the same : "this movie make us dream and give us a lot of hope".
Until The End is a short film written and directed by William Eguienta.
“With this movie, I would like to awaken hope and utopia that lies deep within each of us. Here, I hope to show in particular the strength and courage of a mother to her child to help her be cured or, in the worst scenario, to allow her to take advantage of her last days to the fullest.
The desire to show on the screen the feelings which inhabits a parent facing such a situation is at the the heart of «Until The End». This narrative talks about it through the mythology of Cybèle, girl of the Sky and the Earth, mother of Gods.
The goddess Cybèle occupies a very important position in both the Phrygian mythology, and in Greek and Roman mythology. Abandoned on a mountain and raised by lions, Cybèle had the universal gift to cure and so protect children and the wild animals.
Mythological aside this contrasts with the harsh reality of everyday life of both women.
««We do not require great details on what affects us and flatters us, we are not interested in the rest» the writer Rivarol once said. To obtain poetic, sensitive and spiritual images which I aspire to this film, particular attention was paid to the cinematography. Realism is crucial for me on this film the immerse the viewer into the heart of emaotion. Full with truth, «Until The End» shows reality without embellishment.
I hope that my movie will be a heart beat, a race filled with optimism, against fate and despair.
A movie of Life.
